The app combines highly accurate weather forecast for your location with a map showing development of weather in a broader area in a very interesting way. This allows you to see where precipitation is going to come from or where the wind is blowing from. The uniqueness of the app comes from the amount of data displayed. Forecast of weather, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, atmospheric pressure, snow cover and other meteorological data for different altitudes is available for the whole world.
The Ventusky application solves weather displaying in an interesting way. Wind is displayed using streamlines which clearly portray the continuous development of weather. Airflow on Earth is always in motion and the streamlines depict this motion in an amazing way. This makes the interconnection of all atmospheric phenomena obvious.
Weather forecast for the first three days is available in the app in one-hour steps. For other days, it’s available in three-hour steps. Users can also look up sunrise and sunrise times in a given place.
Thanks to the Ventusky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The app collects data from the most accurate numerical models. Besides the well-known data from the American GFS and HRRR models, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German COSMO and particular ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe.

The applications Ventusky: Weather Maps was published in the category Weather on 2017-09-12 and was developed by InMeteo, s.r.o.. The file size is 131.88 MB. The current version is 5.0 and works well on 9.0 and high ios versions.
This update brings new major features!
- New EURAD and USRAD model: the precipitation layer for the current time is based on radar and satellite readings from US and Europe and it is updated every 20 minutes. This is huge a improvement in accuracy.
- Lightning forecast: you can see the lightning forecast for the whole world directly on the precipitation layer.
- Bug fixes
I love this app a lot of control and information at your fingertips. Just sad that on the website you can see the hurricanes and the tropical storm and the names. On the app I haven’t been able to see how to get that to show up.
Fantastic graphics to show exactly what is going on around you weather wise.
Helps to see the big weather picture over time.
When I scroll down to see the current weather breakdown, I’m still getting Celsius even though I’ve changed the app to Fahrenheit. Is there a way to fix this? Edited to add: Why does the website allow for you to see the weather 10 days in advance, but the app only allows you to see 2 days? I wish I had known this before paying for the app. I figured it would be the same as the website.
I find this app fascinating. So much information on a global scale.
Good app but needs better base maps. The map provided does not give good landmarks at times depending on the area you are looking at. An aerial image or one with more towns, roads and waterways would be a lot better.
As a sailer and home owner living in the Caribbean this app is very useful!
Use it for helicopter power line patrols so knowing the wind and gusts is great. Also the low cloud filter works great for ground level stuff/fog. Love this thing and use it daily. Get it if you want good graphics at a glance.
No bs just keep checking in ;-)
hands-down the finest weather app on the app store! very strong recommend!
They need to change the color option so that wind speed background is legible in the darker shades. When the jet stream at 12K meters is displayed in a dark purple, the wind speed numbers are black and practically invisible. I posted this a while back, and they fixed it to show numbers in white on dark background. Great Job!
This app gives reliable hurricane predictions. Over the years I have noticed that TV predictions are modified to produce fear in populated areas in an effort to raise awareness and preparedness. With Ventusky, you get more accurate predictions. I have lived in Florida 25 years.
5/13/18. The developer has corrected the problem. I always loved the app and now I can use it without issues! 12/2/17 update. Going from 4 to 2 stars. The developer hasn’t fixed the disappearing bug I reported. I can only view the map for a few seconds before it disappears. It becomes totally useless at that point. I’ll definitely change my review if this problem gets corrected. ———————- Love the Web app (found it in the UK Mail coverage of the Irma and Maria hurricanes) and I was hooked. The iOS app is a great start. Two problems I have are that: . The app doesn’t remember the prior setting. . The map disappears when I change settings. Apologies if these have already been reported. Thanks and looking forward to more features. Chuck
Keeps crashing on iphone x. Not able to use this app for months now. And its a paid app. Fix please. Update: Reinstalled. Fixed the issue. Thank you
It would very helpful for aviators to know cloud ceilings and layer in addition to the percentage of coverage that you already provide.
Came from “myradar” after that went downhill. Found the website, which is awesome, that led me here.
The app is crashing as soon as it opens, both on iPhone and iPad.
I had a problem with the app not working after upgrading to to IOS 11.3. The developer addressed it immediately. Thanks!
Pls update this version. Crush in iPhone 7 Plus iOS 11.3
With newest update Not working no wind speed or arrows just blank screen Update Uninstalled app and reinstalled as requested by developer not works great Thanks
Really great tool
